Property owned by Roane County property assessor candidate Cheryl Laxton and her husband was foreclosed on by Citizens National Bank earlier this year.
Laxton said she doesn’t think that should be a reflection on her ability to run the assessor’s office.
“We were caught up in a downturn economy like so many other great people in Roane County,” she said.
The property is located in Providence Place subdivision on Hwy. 58. Laxton said she and her husband purchased it in 2008 with plans to build mid-scale condos.
